Description

The painting depicts the episode of Susanna and the Elders, reported in the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament: two elderly people approach Susanna with perverse intentions, as she is about to bathe in the fountain in her garden and she rejects them. These, annoyed, threaten her saying that they will denounce her for adultery, dragging her to court. The woman resists the accusations and is then acquitted, thanks to the intervention of Daniele, who unmasks the two men.

Since the sixteenth century, Susanna's theme enjoys particular success, because, while referring to a sacred theme, it enhances the femininity and sensuality of the heroine.
The painting belongs to the Lombard school of the second half of the century. XVII and stylistically approaches the ways of Giuseppe Nuvolone (1619-1703), a member of the family of painters of Cremonese origin, active in Milan and Lombardy.

Location: room n. 1
